“Homecoming” by Michael Morpurgo

A moving tale by the great man about his own childhood in Bradwell, Essex, and how the building of a nuclear power station destroyed a paradise, in particular the caravan-home of Miss Pettigrew. Much is made of the fact that only a few decades later the power station is being closed down. What was it all for?

Michael Morpurgo is a patron of the Othona Community, whose original centre is next to St Peter’s Chapel Bradwell, the oldest church in England.
